New Haven – Sentence For Hit-And-Run Suspect

A man has been sentenced to prison yesterday for killing a pedestrian in New Haven.

The deadly incident occurred at the intersection of Ellsworth and Whalley Avenues back in June 2018. 28-year-old Luis Lala was driving at the intersection when he hit 37-year-old Bobby Pinkston. Instead of assisting the victim, Lala fled the scene. He was eventually charged with evading responsibility. Pinkston died from injuries sustained in the accident. Lala, an illegal immigrant, has now been sentenced to four years in prison, after which he will be deported.
